[quote:RoXY:MV8xNTc4NDI2XzMzMDY2MjY5Xzc3NDNFNDlD] [b]Top Economists: Iceland Did It Right … And Everyone Else Is Doing It Wrong[/b] by Washington's Blog August 25, 2012 [b]Iceland Shows the Way[/b] Nobel prize winning economist Joe Stiglitz notes: What Iceland did was right. It would have been wrong to burden future generations with the mistakes of the financial system. Nobel prize winning economist Paul Krugman writes: What [Iceland's recovery] demonstrated was the … case for letting creditors of private banks gone wild eat the losses. Krugman also says: A funny thing happened on the way to economic Armageddon: Iceland’s very desperation made conventional behavior impossible, freeing the nation to break the rules. Where everyone else bailed out the bankers and made the public pay the price, Iceland let the banks go bust and actually expanded its social safety net. Where everyone else was fixated on trying to placate international investors, Iceland imposed temporary controls on the movement of capital to give itself room to maneuver. Krugman is right. Letting the banks go bust – instead of perpetually bailing them out – is the right way to go. We’ve previously noted: Iceland told the banks to pound sand. And Iceland’s economy is doing much better than virtually all of the countries which have let the banks push them around.
